Surgical site infections (SSIs) are a common complication following surgical procedures, requiring prompt and effective treatment to ensure proper healing and prevent further complications. Our approach to managing SSIs encompasses advanced treatment options, vigilant monitoring, and patient education, providing comprehensive care for those affected by postoperative infections.

Recognizing Symptoms of Surgical Site Infections

Early detection of SSIs is crucial for effective treatment. Common symptoms include:

  • Redness and swelling at the surgical site.
  • Increased pain or tenderness around the wound.
  • Fever or chills indicating a systemic response.
  • Pus or discharge from the incision site.
  • Delayed healing or reopening of the wound.

Treatment for Postoperative Wound Infections

Our treatment strategies for SSIs are multifaceted and may include:

  • Antibiotic Therapy: Tailored to the specific bacteria causing the infection.
  • Wound Debridement: Removal of infected tissue to promote healing.
  • Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT): To assist in wound closure and healing.
  • Advanced Wound Dressings: Optimized for infection control and healing promotion.

Understanding Different Types of Surgical Site Infections

SSIs can vary in severity and depth:

  • Superficial Incisional SSI: Involves only the skin and subcutaneous tissue.
  • Deep Incisional SSI: Extends into muscles and surrounding tissues.
  • Organ/Space SSI: Affects organs or spaces opened or manipulated during surgery.
